This is a view of the north east coast of Scotland after one of our recent snow storms, it was taken from my brother and sister in law's garden. They are fortunate to have spectacular views of the North Sea from their windows.

This is a beautiful photo and what amazing scenery to look at every day! I would love to visit there someday!

Thanks for bringing back some wonderful memories! I lived in Scotland during the 70's. My oldest son Andrew was born there. I miss it so much.
Whilst traveling round Scotland, I had the great fortune to witness these neap tides at Gairloch on the west coast. The waves were about 8 feet high and like a washing machine - continually crashing but only going up the beach about 20 feet - such power was fantastic to watch and capture as they only lasted a couple of hours. They were the highest neap tides ever recorded for forty years according to locals.
Editor's Note: "A tide that occurs when the difference between high and low tide is least; the lowest level of high tide. Neap tide comes twice a month, in the first and third quarters of the moon."- from the Free Dictionary

Thought you might be interested to see a photo of the public toilets at the Kyle of Lochalsh in the Highlands of Scotland. The toilets have won awards for cleanliness and uniqueness and have become something of a tourist attraction! The toilets and hand basins are sparkling clean. There are flowers and pictures from ceiling to floor. The 20 pence entrance fee is money well spent. This is the Ladies but I have it on good authority that the Gents are just as nice!

Maybe if enough people make a big deal of it, more locations will maintain their toilet facilities this wonderfully. Hey, a gal can hope! Our park system toilets in my small area of Ohio (USA) are shameful!
This is a photo of Red Castle in Lunan, Scotland that I took this spring. The earliest structure was built in the 12th century. It passed through several hands until the 16th century.
This was a photograph taken on Mid Summer evening from my garden.
My niece works as a reindeer herder in the Cairngorm mountains in Scotland. This is a photo of some of the mothers and calves being herded up to higher ground, where they will spend the summer months.
My niece has been working with the reindeer in Scotland's Cairngorm Mountains. They are very tame and a popular tourist attraction all year round.
We are so lucky to live within walking distance of our beach. The town can be seen in the distance and off to the right there is a small river flows out to sea; the dunes and golf course are adjacent and provide such varied walks.
My niece is working in the Cairngorms, herding reindeer. This is one of the many spectacular views she encounters on a daily basis.
This memorial was unveiled last year at Fraserburgh in NE Scotland, and dedicated to the local lifeboatmen who have lost their lives endeavouring to save others. Brave men who go out in the stormiest of weather, with no regard for their own safety.
Toward Lighthouse located on the Isle of Bute in Scotland. The lightkeepers house is privately owned, however the lighthouse is still owned by the Council and still operates.
Loch Ussie in the Highlands of Scotland. I took this photo from the top of Knockfarrel, near the cottage we had rented for our holiday.
